This session will inspire women while providing them a fun and interesting story of how I built a multi-million dollar business with NO BUSINESS EXPERIENCE OR BACKGROUND. I will go through the lessons learned on my journey from being a mom dealing with toddlers (having to play hide and seek to make calls) to going on Shark Tank and getting a deal with Kevin O’leary. This past year in the midst of the pandemic I actually acquired Macaroni Kid so now becoming the largest family media company in the country between the 2 businesses together.


Jamie Ratner is an entrepreneur, Maryland mother of two, and Founder & CEO of CertifiKID (, the nation’s largest resource for parents to find and save on kids’ activities and family-friendly experiences. Sprouted from an idea that started at her kitchen table ten years ago, CertifiKID has grown into a national brand focused on helping families spend more quality time together creating incredible memories on a budget. Jamie recently appeared on the popular ABC television show ‘Shark Tank’ and received a $600,000 investment in her company from Kevin O’Leary, one of the top five biggest investments Mr. O’Leary has made in any company in ten seasons of the show.
